We don’t even want to get into the argument this time around but we’ll instead just share this video of a Nissan GT-R Switzer R850 lining up against a Suzuki GSX1300R, more famously known as the Hayabusa, for a mile-long drag race.

As the name suggests, the GT-R is packing the R850 performance kit from tuner Switzer that sends 850hp to all four wheels. The crotch rocket on the other hand brings healthy 198hp to the table, giving it the edge in the power-to-weight ratio stakes.

The results are predictable but you’ll want to watch the video nonetheless and see just how close those two get on the mile run.

After top-dollar mods,finally the GTR can getting on hot pursuit with the miles time that the busa can produce on almost stock trim......if the stakes was given on straight line,my takes is always on the bike+good rider(because no matter how powerful the bike,many mere mortal like most of us cant get a good launch even on modest 600cc)

If track race I really sure the GTR had even a higher chance to leave the bike since busa is not the kind of bike that would be use to extreme lean like pure made super sportsbike(big ass,high capacity hypersport-touring like busa is really made for high speed touring capability & its quite heavy to flick around the tight bend.)
